How do I get to BLD Ontario?

Both the conference and evening reception will be held at Evergreen Brick Works, located at 555 Bayview Avenue in Toronto. It is accessible via foot, bicycle, public transportation or car.

We'll be hosting our sessions in the Centre for Green Cities, which can be accessed through the Young Welcome Centre.

Parking

If you're driving, please note that parking on-site is paid, and the fee is $8 for full day parking. This fee is not included in your ticket.

Carpooling

We encourage you to share a ride if you're arriving by car. Ridesharing apps are great, or for out of town guests looking to carpool, please use this link to request a carpool and we will try to coordinate those coming from the same city.
